Math 20C (Shenk). Quiz 2. August 23, 2010. Name Work alone and use no books, notes, or calculators. Put your work on 8.”‘ × 11” paper and staple it to the quiz when you turn it in.‘ 1. What is the curvature at x = 0 of y = e 2 x , oriented from left to right? 2. When an object is at (5 , 5) in an xy -plane with distances measured in feet, its velocity vector is 3 i + 4 j feet per second, the curvature of its path is - 2 feet - 1 and it is speeding up 5 feet per second 2 . What is its acceleration vector at that time? 3. (a) Based on the level curves of z = L ( x, y ) in Figure 1, what is the approximate value of L x (20 , 10)? (b) What is the approximate directional derivative of L at (20 , 10) in the direction toward the origin? 4 3 2 1 x 20 - 10 y 20 r θ FIGURE 1 FIGURE 2 4.
